"Out of Control," Eagles
Misheard Lyrics:
Oh why don't you start on shavin'
So we can start on dinin' down
Original Lyrics:
Oh my don't the sky look spacey
With the stars all shinin' down
Story about this misheard lyric by: Night Flyer: I was in a band that did a lot of Eagles stuff. In the '70s poor musicians relied on playing the album over and over to learn lyrics and chords. "Out of Control" was a song we did. These were the lyrics we heard (after listing to it for about 100 times) *and we hadn't smoked or drunk anything*!!
"What You Waiting For?," Gwen Stefani
Misheard Lyrics:
Watch your wedding, watch your wedding
Original Lyrics:
What you waiting? What you waiting?

"Meaning of life," Offspring
Misheard Lyrics:
Sorry man for feeling
Feeling the way I do
Moldy hair, moldy hair
Open wide and they'll shove in
Their meaning of life
Moldy hair, moldy hair
But not for me
I'll do it on my own
Moldy hair, moldy hair
Original Lyrics:
Sorry man for feeling
Feeling the way I do
On yeah, oh yeah
Open wide and they'll shove in
Their meaning of life
Oh yeah, oh yeah
But not for me
I'll do it on my own
Oh yeah, oh yeah
Story about this misheard lyric by: justine: Just how my 4 year old hears the lyrics

Lyrics Alliteration -> Latest Entries

"The KKK Took My Baby Away," The Ramones
The Lyrics:
My baby left for a holiday
She said she was heading to LA
.... She never got there, she never got there, she never got there they say
The KKK took my baby away. They took her away, away from me
* REPEAT 3X* Hey! Ho! Hey! Ho!
Why:
There's so many uses of the phonetic "A" sound here! Also note the "Hey! Ho!"s, referring to another Ramones gem, "Blitzkrieg Bop".
